Foldable screen, triple camera and a FART sensor – the weirdest tech Apple's iPhone 11 could feature

APPLE is maintaining its rumoured iPhone 11 underneath tight wraps – but we will still guess at the fancy options it’d boast.

We have tracked down some of the wackiest features that could make it into the 2019 iPhone – although we wouldn’t rely on it.


A foldable Apple smartphone could revolutionise the method you employ tech

Foldable display design

Apple has filed several patent purposes for foldable telephone designs.

Extra apparently, one professional analyst lately advised The Sun that Apple had probably been “experimenting” with versatile screens in secret labs for years.

It provides hope to Apple followers who need to see a foldable iPhone to rival the Samsung Galaxy Fold and Huawei Mate X.

This yr has seen a sudden flood of foldable telephones from prime brands like Samsung and Huawei, along with lesser recognized rivals TCL and Royole.

Even Motorola appears poised to re-release the basic Motorola Razr as a foldable smartphone system – but we’ve heard nothing from Apple ahead of its rumoured iPhone 11 launch later in the yr.

Nevertheless, one prime business watcher thinks Apple has been testing bendy screens behind closed doorways, and could someday launch a foldable iPhone.

“It is inconceivable that Apple has not been experimenting with flexible displays in it design labs for years,” Ben Wood, an professional analyst at CCS Perception, informed The Solar.

Nevertheless, Ben pointed out that Apple is “rarely the first to embrace cutting-edge technologies like this” – and as an alternative prefers to wait, and get the tech proper.

“You can be sure Apple will be scrutinising the new products from Samsung, Huawei and others with a forensic level of detail trying to figure out how Apple can best deliver a foldable iPhone,” he defined.

The jury continues to be out on whether or not foldable phones are literally going to catch on.

The thought is that you could carry a giant tablet-sized display around with you, which then folds down into a pocket-able smartphone.

Nevertheless, getting high-quality screens to bend is troublesome, which makes producing foldable phones extremely pricey.

As an example, Samsung’s Galaxy Fold will set you again about £1,800 in the UK, whereas Huawei’s Mate X will value upwards of £2,000.

That makes Apple’s costliest smartphone so far – the £1,449 iPhone XS Maxtop mannequin – look positively low cost.

And early impressions of the Royole FlexPai foldable telephone recommend it’s a bit clunky to make use of.

Will Apple comply with go well with? Sadly, it’s too soon to say.

Constructed-in fart sensor

One Apple patent reveals a specialised sensor that may turn the gadget into a poisonous fuel detector – which could probably even sniff out pongy farts.

Nevertheless, it’s extra doubtless to be used for security, protecting users towards deadly gases.

A strong sensor loaded into the handset would set off an alarm if carbon monoxide or other gases in a room reach harmful ranges.

The new iPhone could odor your farts

Apple gained a patent for the weird system final yr, and says the know-how could find yourself in both the latest iPhone and Apple Watch.

It aims to select up harmful, poisonous gases which might be in any other case invisible or odourless, akin to carbon monoxide or methane.

The sensor might even be capable of choosing up a nasty smelling fart.

Over the years, a number of people who personal noxious fuel detectors have reported their trumps set off methane alarms on the units.

The Apple patent exhibits diagrams of a “miniature gas sensing device encased in an enclosure”.

An Apple Watch is utilized in the patent demonstration for instance of an “enclosure”.

There is no assure that Apple will fit the noxious fuel detectors into its future units – like the rumoured iPhone 11.

Patents show that a company is merely considering a know-how, which it might never build.

Apple’s secret iPhone 11 design might have been revealed early – and it has THREE cameras

Hidden selfie camera

All tech corporations are scrambling to fill your telephone with extra display.

Apple principally managed the job with 2017’s iPhone X, but was pressured to incorporate a small “notch” cut-out to deal with the selfie camera.

However one Apple patent reveals a means of boosting display area in your smartphones much more.

The patent, first spotted by Let’s Go Digital, was revealed in the US in November 2018, and describes an “integrated camera window” in the display.

That’s a fancy means of describing a gap in the show, which would be used to deal with a camera lens.

The camera would doubtless be designed in a means that pictures could be taken by way of the display with out distorting the photograph you’re snapping.

Details on exactly how this is able to be achieved are mild, and would in all probability require another patent to pin down.

Nevertheless it’s proof that Apple has at the least thought-about embedding cameras underneath smartphone displays.

By doing so, it might be potential to fill the complete entrance of a smartphone with display.

Apple didn’t handle to realize the feat with the iPhone XR, iPhone XS or iPhone XS Max – final yr’s trio of smartphones.

But there’s hope that in 2019 or 2020, Apple will discover a method to do it.

Triple camera on the back

Apple’s iPhone 11 has been extensively rumoured to feature a triple camera on the again.

Better nonetheless, a 3D idea render of the system has turned up on-line, and could probably exhibit the remaining design of the long-awaited iPhone 11.

Apple won’t formally unveil the new iPhone till September, however plenty of potential details about the telephone has already been leaked.

That’s allowed common YouTube Channel Idea Creator to make a 3D pc model of the telephone.

In fact, it’s completely attainable that this concept appears nothing like Apple’s last iPhone.

But there’s each probability it is right – and could be our best early glimpse of the 2019 iPhone.

The most obvious change is on the back of the telephone, which hosts the iPhone’s foremost camera.

This idea exhibits Apple adding a triple-camera module on the again of the handset – which might be a first for the iPhone.

It isn’t as farfetched as it sounds, either.

The Sun lately spoke to cellular skilled Dan Ives, a prime business watcher who believes we’ll see three cameras on the again of the new iPhone.

“This next phone will all be about triple rear-camera capabilities, with enhanced optical lens capabilities a major selling point,” stated Dan, a Managing Director at Wedbush Securities.

“There could also be significantly enhanced face recognition technology and some other hardware/design enhancements to catalyse upgrades.”

Whereas a triple-camera system may sound wacky, it will probably truly deliver major benefits to images – and your Instagram recreation.

As an example, having two cameras on the new iPhone XS lets the handset sense depth more precisely.

This enables Apple to supply augmented actuality options – like practical Snapchat filters, and better versions of video games like Pokémon Go.

This also makes professional-grade Portrait Mode selfies potential, where the subject is in focus however the background is blurred.

Including a third camera makes it even easier to sense depth, probably enhancing all of these options.
